Forwarded on behalf of Robyn Stutchbury:
Perhaps the underlying problem has not being given due consideration. It
seems to be a matter of lack of professionalism and that in turn is a
matter of poor training during undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
Science communication skills should be a compulsory component of course
work for all considering a career science. It is not difficult to
determine a comfortable number of spoken words per minute and apply this
to a few key points in a list of essential topics. The topics can then
be given time allocation which can be quickly checked by a timer on the
speaker's lectern. A brief rehearsal will quickly determine what
amendments must be made to meet the time constraints.
